Natalie had lost Oscar and wanted me to create a memorial portrait. The only photo we had that did him justice was one of him sitting at their feet at their wedding day when he was the ring bearer.
She wanted him in the setting of their back yard. With extra photos I placed him sitting naturally in their rocky backyard setting minus the ring bearing collar.
“You haven’t just painted a picture of a pet Australian Blue Cattle Dog, you’ve painted Oscar’.
Even though you never actually met Oscar you have still managed to capture his personality.
